Pere Marquette fishing report -Feb 22nd

Steve and I hit the lower river on Tuesday. Lows Monday night were in the single digits and the river was very slushy in the morning until the sun finally rose overhead. By 1pm most of the slush had melted but the river was quite murky. Visibility was, at best, 2 feet. Water temps were 33. But that didn’t matter too much. Steve hooked a nice steelhead on a clown egg but it came unbuttoned. About an hour later I hooked one on a black marabou intruder style pattern. This one made it to the boat. It was a nice, thick fish. Steve and I have been getting a bit of a hard time about not smiling in fish pics, so here’s some pearly vaguely whites for you.

MARCH MADNESS! We’d like to take this opportunity to announce Indigo’s March Madness sale. This will be the second year in a row without the Custer lamprey weir and we’re expecting early Spring steelhead runs to improve. March used to be our busiest month and we want to show people how good the fishing can be this time of year. So if you book a day in March, we’ll give you a second for half price. If you book two days in March, you’ll get a third for free.

And if you’re up in March, as we saw yesterday, there’s no better place to stay than Barothy Lodge.
